The Hospitals of Providence Children’s Hospital believes that health care extends beyond the clinical setting. Contrary to how Make-A-Wish is sometimes perceived—it is not a "last wish" or a wish for a terminal child. The wish experience brings HOPE, STRENGTH, and JOY to a child with a life-threatening medical condition. We share the foundation’s believe that this one experience can be a game-changer in the lives of ill children and their families.
As part of our efforts in providing a comprehensive approach to health care, the Providence Children’s Hospital supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation in their mission of granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with Hope, Strength and Joy.
Every 38 minutes Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We share the foundation’s believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.
